Two in ‘Republican women for Obama’ ad exposed as Democrats
Daily Caller ^ | August 25, 2012 | Jeff Poor

Posted on 08/27/2012 5:34:40 AM PDT by Pinkbell

Although the ad got a lot of playtime on MSNBC Friday, a recent so-called “Republican women for Obama” video advertisement has turned out to be a disingenuous campaign ploy.

That ad, posted on the official Barack Obama campaign YouTube page on Friday, claimed to show a group of women that had previously voted Republican but later abandoned the party because they felt it went too far to the right, leaving them no alternative but to vote for President Barack Obama this November.

The problem is, so far two of these women have been shown to be Democrats who had previously supported Obama.

First pointed out by Zeke Miller of Buzzfeed, one of the featured actors in the video, Maria Ciano had been a registered Democrat since October 2006, according to Colorado voter registration records.

John Hinderaker of Powerline took it a step further and investigated Ciano’s Facebook page and found some of her Facebook “likes” fall under many left-on-center causes:

•Democracy For America •Tar Sands Action •Amy Goodman •Barack Obama •Costoftaxcuts.com •Being Liberal •MoveOn.org •Bernie Sanders Tells You A Secret the GOP Would Rather You Didn’t Know •Miss Piggy Delivers the Best Takedown of Fox News We’ve Seen All Month •Think Progress •The Best Quote From Barack Obama We’ve Seen This Week •Dow and Monsanto Join Forces to Poison America’s Heartland •Climate Reality •Grist.org •The Amazing Victory Scored With Obama That More People Should Be Talking About •The Sierra Club •The Buffett Rule •Obama For America–Colorado •UniteWomen.org •Denver Young Democrats •Obamacare •Latinos For Obama •Michelle Obama •Veterans For Obama •I Love It When I Wake Up In the Morning and Obama Is President •Obama Truth Team •Democratic Party

Wow. I think her likes on Facebook pretty much hit every liberal cause. The article also says:

But Hinderaker also discovered that Ciano’s mother, Delia Ciano is another one of the women in the ad, who also has a history of pro-Obama support on her Facebook as well.

I can't believe the Democrats tried to pass these women off as Republicans and thought no one would find out. Democrat fail.

I’m shocked that the Obama campaign would resort to lies in their ads. I’m further shocked that the MSM didn’t point out these lies.

Obama and his staff are as incompetent at campaigning as they are at anything else

You can't include the 2008 campaign, that was a gift from McLame and the GOP and T?E MEDIA

Bit even The Media cannot cover up gross incompetence.

Of course. Republicans consistently appeal to the truth. Any misstep is proof of their hypocrisy. Truth for democrats, as Debbie W recently made clear, is not important. Only their claims for the moral high ground are important. They "want women to know" that Republicans will keep them barefoot and pregnant. Never mind that Democrat policies keep minority women barefoot and pregnant as a survival tactic.

It is perfectly legal to have lies in ads, and millions more people will see the ads on TV than will ever read the proof that they are lies. Therefore it works. That’s how propaganda words. (Hitler sent out notification on September 1 1939 that Poland had just attacked Germany. Having words spoken on mass media didn’t make them true then either.)

In this country, you can call yourself just about any darned thing you want to. In some instances, it is a matter of walking in the front door, laying down some cash, and collecting some card that is “proof” that you are thus and such, and therefore has as much validity as anybody else who may have come in with sincere desire and devotion in heart for a particular cause.

Then, as an “insider”, the saboteur engages on carrying back tales and plausible statements about the “unfitness” of the organization, and the goals they aspire to, and even some inside information of more personal nature about some of the other membership, for opposition research.

And that is how we get Muslims established in the White House, the State Department, and the military. Nobody will stand up and counteract the effects of “political correctness”.

Much like Joe McCarthy and the infiltration of high levels of our government by agents of the Soviet Union and international Communism. He found it, he revealed to some extent how deeply they had penetrated, and he was excoriated unto death and beyond for daring to pull back the blinds that had been carefully set up for the most of thirty years previous.

And now certain persons been covering for the Islamic jihadists much like there had been cover for Communism years earlier. This intense effort to subvert our country to Islam has been going on since about the time of Jimmy Carter.

When are we going to clean house? Or shall we NEVER get around to many necessary chores?

Truly, lefties are habitual/pathological liers.
Listening to call in radio programs,C-SPAN, NPR, and reading ANY comment secion after a news article, or news articles themselves, demonstrates their ease of lying.

Even when the truth is straight forward and even beneficial they lie..???

Every democrat / Obama / liberal ad featuring any anecdotal story - republican women going for Obama, Doctors who love Obamacare, the guy who blames Romney because his wife died of cancer - should be vetted. They do this ALL THE TIME.

It’s like the liberals took the “fake but accurate” scenario that ended Dan Rather’s career and said “hey, that could work.” and employ that approach on every scenario they can find.

Sounds like a woman in my office who claims that she used to be a Republican, but has since switched to Democrat. When you ask her opinions on the major issues, they are all liberal - pro-higher taxes, pro-abortion, pro-more entitlements, anti-military.

I told her that calling herself a former Republican is meaningless since she has voted Democrat and held liberal beliefs all along.

No one in the msm will publish this. As far as the ignorant followers of satan are concerned, it is the truth as it was originally spun.

By any means necessary, just like Al Qieda and the Muslims.
It is OK to lie to the infidel (American people) if it furthers their agenda.

NAIL ON HEAD.

You got that right.

I and my wife looked at the 2008 obama rallies and this years rallies.

We always look at the crowd behind him and why is it that Dem women wear to shirts, look scruffy, never nice look sexy dresses. They look like angry women or look like men.
They look rough, ugly not every classy and they always jump up and down as if bozo the clown was their messiah
The men look either like the typical union worker or the girlie boy student types .

Compare to our rallies, the women have mostly longish hair, look like a woman , wear classy sexy clothing, look clean, hair done, make up on, etc.
The men look well dressed, look like a man .
Neither jump up and down screaming and fainting like they do.?

I know a liberal, who I KNOW is insane, said “I always vote for the man and never the party. I did vote for Reagan once during a fit of insanity.” He not only said this. He wrote it on facebook for all the world to see. You know someone’s nuts when they write something stupid and have all the chances in the world to think about it and all the time in the world to delete it.

THE MEDIUM IS THE MESSAGE The Medium is the Massage by Marshall McLuhan




"McLuhan proposed that media themselves, not the content they carry, should be the focus of study—popularly quoted as "the medium is the message". McLuhan's insight was that a medium affects the society in which it plays a role not by the content delivered over the medium, but by the characteristics of the medium itself. McLuhan pointed to the light bulb as a clear demonstration of this concept. A light bulb does not have content in the way that a newspaper has articles or a television has programs, yet it is a medium that has a social effect; that is, a light bulb enables people to create spaces during nighttime that would otherwise be enveloped by darkness. He describes the light bulb as a medium without any content. McLuhan states that "a light bulb creates an environment by its mere presence." More controversially, he postulated that content had little effect on society—in other words, it did not matter if television broadcasts children's shows or violent programming, to illustrate one example—the effect of television on society would be identical. He noted that all media have characteristics that engage the viewer in different ways; for instance, a passage in a book could be reread at will, but a movie had to be screened again in its entirety to study any individual part of it."


The medium of women supporting obama is all that matters the truth or lie of the story does not matter. Only the image of women supporting the communist.

What a shocker.

I was a 12 in 1996 and I remember an ad with a “lifelong Republican” mother and daughter voting Clinton cause Dole was too extreme on abortion opposing it “even in cases of rape and incest”. I didn’t believe those commercial actresses were really mother and daughter let alone Republican and I don’t believe all the letters to the editor I’ve read that start “I’m a Republican but...”.

This tactic annoys me. As do commercials were the actors pretend to be “real people on the street” or real “satisfied customers” in general.
